Lyric "Down South"

Now an' I'm goin' back down South
Man, where the weather suits my clothes
Now, I done fooled around in Chicago
Yank, I done almost froze
Now, that I done fooled around in Chicago
Lord, I done almost froze

Lord, my baby, my baby
She don't treat me good no mo'
Now, I know the reason she don't love me
She's wild about Mr. So an' So
Now I know the reason she don't love me
She's wild about Mr. So an' So

Now an' I know my baby
N' I know, Miss Lacey, wanna see me now
Because my baby she didn't want me
To come way back up here, no how
Lord, my baby she didn't want me
To come way back up here, no how

Sonny Boy Williamson

Alex or Aleck Miller (né Ford, possibly December 5, 1912– May 24, 1965),[4] known later in his career as Sonny Boy Williamson, was an American blues harmonica player, singer and songwriter.[5] He was an early and influential blues harp stylist who recorded successfully in the 1950s and 1960s. Miller used various names, including Rice Miller and Little Boy Blue, before calling himself Sonny Boy Williamson, which was also the name of a popular Chicago blues singer and harmonica player. To distinguish the two, Miller has been referred to as Sonny Boy Williamson II.
